Abstract

A procedure using osteotomes and bioactive glass as an alloplastic bone graft material is discussed, and three clinical cases are reviewed. Bioactive glass of a narrow size range (300-355 μm) has been shown to be osteoconductive and allows for good integration and regeneration of surrounding bony tissue. We have found this technique to be a predictable method of preparing and placing longer implants in the region of the maxillary premolar region without the need for additional donor site morbidity.
